Miley Cyrus Would Have A Ball As A Comedienne

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has been working very hard to make the transition from child to adult star, after having starred in the Disney Channel hit series Hannah Montana. As of late, Miley has been working very hard concentrating on her career, in addition to being back in the studio recording a new album.

Cyrus has also jumped in front of the cameras again. Cyrus just appeared on a few episodes of Two and Half Men, where she really did a great job and was quite funny. Cyrus could have a great future based on her comedic abilities. Cyrus told us that if she could emulate anyone’s career in acting, it would be the queen of comedy, Lucille Ball.

ON THIS DAY IN SHOW BIZ: I LOVE LUCY DEBUTS

On this day in 1951, TV’s first long-running sitcom hit, I Love Lucy, debuts. The show starred comedian Lucille Ball and her real-life husband, Desi Arnaz.

Ball was born in 1911 near Jamestown, New York, to an electrician and a concert pianist. Her father died when Ball was two. By age 15, Ball had decided to become an actress and she attended drama school. However, the shy, skinny teenager received little encouragement and was rejected at least four times from Broadway chorus lines, although she eventually joined one in 1926. In 1933, she was hired as the Chesterfield cigarette girl and was featured in all the company’s advertisements. Attracting attention with her Chesterfield ads, she finally began playing bit parts in Hollywood movies in 1933. By the late 1930s, the starlet had graduated to comic supporting roles. In 1940, she met Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz while shooting Too Many Girls. The couple married the following year.

Ball continued to land movie roles that didn’t fully showcase her talents. Frustrated, she turned to radio and starred as a ditzy wife in My Favorite Husband from 1948 to 1951. CBS decided to launch the popular series on the relatively new medium of TV. Lucy insisted Desi be cast as her husband in the TV version, though the network executives said no one would believe the couple were married. Desi and Lucy performed before live audiences and filmed a pilot, convincing network executives that audiences responded well to their act, and CBS cast Desi for the show.

I Love Lucy became one of the most popular TV situation comedies in history, ranking in the top three shows for six years and turning the couple’s production company, Desilu, into a multimillion-dollar business. Ball became president of the company in 1960, after she and Desi divorced. She also starred in several other “Lucy” shows, including The Lucy Show, which debuted in 1962 and ran for six seasons, and Here’s Lucy, in which she starred with her two children until the show was cancelled in 1974. A later show, Life with Lucy, featuring Lucy as a grandmother, was cancelled after only eight episodes. Ball worked little in the last years of her life. She died of congestive heart failure following open-heart surgery in 1989.
